James Flanagan

Inspector James Flanagan.

Witness at Frances Coles' inquest.

Born c.1853, Ireland. In 1891 he was living at 407 Commercial Road with his wife Emily (b.1865) and son Herbert (b.1890)[1]. Appeared on the third day of the Coles inquest where he stated:

"I am stationed at Leman-street Police-station, and on Friday, the 13th inst., from information I received, I proceeded at once to Swallow-gardens, and there found the dead body of a woman lying on the ground under the arch. Dr. Oxley was there examining the body. I gave orders for a thorough search to be made, and in the meantime Dr. Phillips, the divisional surgeon, arrived. After he had made an examination and pronounced the woman dead, the body was removed to the mortuary. I then made a search in the archway and behind an iron pipe I found a piece of newspaper in which were wrapped two separate shillings. I have no doubt that it had been purposely hidden there."[2]
